peak hours because we have fewer controllers on staff. >> reporter: meantime in washington, president obama plans to speak with congress this weekend to avert another crisis. but both sides are ramping up the blame game. listen to what the president said about the looming sequester during a press conference yesterday. >> i never think that anything's inevitable. we always have the opportunity to make the right decisions. my hope is is that we can see a different course taken by congress. this should be a no-brainer. >> reporter: solutions the president is confident will work. but unless he can cut a deal with congress, alex, we could see drastic changes kick in this time next week. >> all right, michelle frandsze thank you for that. >> joining me now with reaction republican congresswoman marcia blackburn. representative blackburn, nice to have you back to the show. >> good to be with you, laenale >> the president says this is a no-brainer and says the congress can stop the sequester at any time. how do you respond to that? >> well, i find it all very interesting. because we didn't ha
to the hill to get past a previous budget crisis. >> one of the most curious lines in washington right now that this is obama's sequester. yes, the president might have proposed it. house republicans pushed it through their chamber, and the senate pushed it through the senate. it's really everybody's responsibility. all hands were on deck in 2011 when they did this. now, both sides have political advantages to stay where they are. the senate needs taxes. house republicans cannot put any tax revenue in this equation because john boehner passed tax increases with the fiscal cliff and cannot afford to do it again politically. it's too difficult for him. >> what about what's happening inside the caucus? the sort of rivalries, cantor and boehner and paul ryan sort of moving up on the inside? who is the most influential player right now in that caucus when it comes to budget decisions? >> it's john -- still it's three people. john boehner, eric cantor, and paul ryan, and paul ryan and cantor are going to keep boehner to the right. i mean, cantor and ryan's advisors have told us privately there i
to hear it and embrace the leadership. >> the "washington post" ruth marcus calls this obama's marriage equality test in a new op-ed she penned saying a president who speaks so eloquently cannot allow his administration to remain silent before the court where words are translated into reality. so should minority rights be put up to statewide vote for majorities to vote on marriage equality? the president basically said in the interview with robin roberts, that's the way he supports this, that states can figure this out. >> what the president said correctly is that the states are wrestling with this and we're seeing progress in the states, whether it be new york or iowa or four states last november. at the same time, we all have a constitution that guarantees us all protections and responsibilities and rights under the law. if every time somebody wanted their freedom to be respected, freedom of speech, freedom to marry, they had to but it up to a vote, it wouldn't be a right, it would be a vote. that's not the way america is supposed to work. >> republicans have realized to win elections

games are what washington is all b. president obama has proved himself very good to play this game. he has a strong hand right now. in the current situation with the $16 trillion in debt both republicans and democrat vs. plenty of blame. but it's kind of unusual in this particular case to have president obama complaining about the sequester, since bob woodward's book clearly pins the impetus for the sequester on the white house. the white house came up with this back before the election, because president obama really didn't want to have another big fight about the debt ceiling and everything and he wanted to give some sort of cuts to republicans in order to get past the election. and then he succeeded and here we are now where these cuts are about to take effect. we've kicked the can down the road a couple of times now, and now that he's securely reelected he really doesn't want to have these cuts go into effect. and he's desperate to find some other way of lessening the concerns of republicans who are very concerned about the exploding costs of the government. jon: if both sides agre
